They’re getting more attention now because they’re on canvas and at Gagosian, but Richard Prince’s Instagram Portraits have been circulating for a while. Do we think of them differently then when he was assembling them in the spring and summer? When they were printouts on the floor instead of canvas on the wall? Or when they were $12 a sheet at karma in the Hamptons, or a couple hundred dollars a box at Fulton Ryder’s B-List book fair?
Why isn’t just Instagram / or keep them digital enough? greg.org: the making of, by greg allen
Next month we’re excited to be collaborating with The Serpentine Gallery for their annual Marathon project during Frieze London.
The theme for this year’s marathon— and October’s thread on 15folds.com — is Extinction. We are extremely honoured to thread guest curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist of The Serpentine.
To celebrate this collaboration we’re approaching a selection of our favourite 15Folds contributors to date in an open call for submissions.
If you’re interested in submitting, please send us your piece on the theme of Extinction, complete with title and description, by 28th September.
We can’t wait to see what you come up with.
All the best,
The 15folds team
Digital art is getting closer and closer to the ‘traditional’ art world. Latest case in point: HUO is curating GIFs.

Great opportunity to buy an excellent (and large) print on paper from Jack Addis. Also check out his work on The File Arts for the opportunity to purchase his work as digital files. Reveals a totally different side of his work in the ability to explore the layers and techniques used.
DOWNLOAD! Download, download. Don’t assume something you love will be on the web tomorrow. Archiving is the new folk art.
